On The View Rosie O'Donnell said when they bathed together her daughter asked, "When will I get my fur?" Joel McHale of E!'s The Soup wondered, "If they were taking a bath together, why did Rosie have her back to her daughter?" Joel also observed that with Katie Couric helming the news, "The CBS eye goes right up your colon." [Katie once had a colonoscopy on camera.]

Jay Leno remarked on the story of prisoners hiding cell phones in their colons: "There's a 'Can you hear me now?' commercial I don't want to see. I can't even get reception in a real tunnel. And you don't want to hear, 'Here, it's for you.'"

A Fun Murder Mystery

Don't Point That Thing at Me by Kyril Bonfiglioli, 1972

It's about Charlie Mortdecai, degenerate aristocrat and amoral art dealer and his thug Jock Strapp

Jock's surname escapes me, I should think it would be his mother's.

... an internationally known security organization which I always call Set-a-Thief.

I have never had any daughters, but this did not stop Mr. Spinoza sketching out their careers from the nursery to the street corner, so to speak.

I had to be firm about the netting for the standing drapes around my bed. I must admit it was rather lovely but I insisted that it should be blue-for-a-boy. I mean, I have my little ways but I'm not a deviate, for God's sake.

I know lots of men who can flounce but Mrs. Spon is the last woman who can do it.

I cocked an ear. Jock was outside the door, breathing through his nose, making mental notes, if you can properly call them that.

He gave me the hymn 'There is a Fountain Filled with Blood,' which never fails to please.

The folder looked fat and well-handled as a Welsh barmaid.

The sun was shining, the canary bellowing with joy.

The gears engaged in a way which reminded me of a warm spoon going in to a great deal of caviar.

He guffawed happily, his own man again now, reassured that all men are sphincters at bottom, if I may coin a phrase.

The Rolls started up gently, gladly, like a well-goosed widow.

"Ah, go blow it out your ass!" (A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth; and a word spoken in due season, how good it is! Prov. XV:23.)

All the beautiful young men at the Embassy hated me on sight, nasty little cupcakes, but they passed me through to the Ambassador with no more delay than was necessary to make them feel important.

I couldn't find it in my heart to love him but, poor chap, he was probably a Labour appointment; his corridors of power led only to the Gents.

I had never seen an ecdysiast before; toward the end she was wearing nothing but seven beads, four of them sweat.

The effect was pretty sexy, I don't mind telling you. Mr. Abercrombie would have bitten Mr. Fitch if he'd seen it.

(I was to hear enough admiring 'shee-its' in the next few days to refertilize the entire Oklahoma dust bowl.) He giggled like a virgin as he dipped the nozzle into the petrol tank and sped me on my way with one last dungy praise spattering my ears.

She looked about as hard to get as a haircut and at about the same price.

Then the elderly Countess rose and made her way with fragile dignity to the door, where she let out a fart of such frightening power and timbre that I feared she had done herself a mischief.

"Put those people down, Jock," I said severely, "you don't know where they've been."

"Some of my best friends are women," I snapped, "though I certainly wouldn't want my daughter to marry one of them."
"Your mother and father only met once," I said carefully, "and money changed hands. Probably a dime."

"Nope," he said at last. "Have to ask the sheriff and he's to home by now. He don't admire to be disturbed at home 'cept for homicide of white Caucasians."


Bay Area Reporter “Out There” column, 9/14/06: Everlasting civic treasure and raconteur Strange de Jim checked in to say he’s heard from his old friend and soulmate Dame Edna, whose career is on a Gorgeous Upswing since she’s been signed to star in Medusa 2: Snakes on a Dame.

Yet More Late Night

On her local New York interview show actor Zach Braff told Cindy Adams he's bought a $350 shower head. "It gives me golden showers!" He knew what he was saying, but she didn't.

Norm Macdonald on David Letterman said he has very high cholesterol. "I hope they don't have to do a Letterman on me!" [Dave had open heart surgery a few years ago.] Norm also said he's been reading about Hitler. "The more I learn about the guy, the more I don't care for him." Norm has a new CD called Ridiculous that should be pretty good.

Dave Letterman noted that "Survivor has battling ethnic groups, just like The View."

Joel McHale of E!'s The Soup said of the divorce, "Whitney and Bobby finally found something they can quit." On Lindsay Lohan's purse being recovered, "Police don't know what is missing, but suspect a strong male role model." Also, "If you don't get enough football, just watch The Girl's Next Door [Hugh Hefner's girlfriends] pass around an old piece of leather."

Chelsea Handler: "I love little people, excuse me, midgets, but you have to respect them now. You can't just pick them up. You have to ask first." She told Gary Coleman she was 31, and he said, "I thought you were 35. I guess the face fooled me."

Jay Leno: "On Survivor the black, white and Latin teams were caught cheating off the Asian team."
